Love Scenes - The Romance Classics Collection  [DVD] James Stewart (Actor, Primary Contributor), Myrna Loy (Actor, Primary Contributor)
Whether it's silent superstar Rudolph Valentino galloping across the Arabian desert with his lady love in tow, debonair William Powell carrying lovestruck Carole Lombard over his shoulder, or handsome Cary Grant and delightful Irene Dunne as optimistic newlyweds, nobody could tell a love story quite like the movies. Here are a dozen of Hollywood's most memorable romance classics spanning four decades. Top-notch titles such as:
1. The Sheik (1921) - Rudolph Valentino in the title role does some things that can hardly be called romantic by today's standards.
2. Indiscreet (1931) - Gloria Swanson is quite good as a woman trying to keep her sister from taking up with the same man she has been involved with while trying to keep everyone from knowing about the past relationship.
3. A Farewell to Arms (1932) - Nominated for Best Picture, I think it is the best of the film renditions of Hemingway's novel.
4. Bird of Paradise (1932) - Delores Del Rio is a girl with a grim future duty to her people who falls in love with a man from another culture.
5. Animal Kingdom" (1932) - A wealthy young man can't figure out which of two women he really wants.
6. Cover the Waterfront" (1933) - An investigative reporter falls for the daughter (Claudette Colbert) of the target of one of his investigations.
7. My Man Godfrey (1936) - The daughter (Carole Lombard) in an eccentric wealthy family brings home one of the Depression's forgotten men (William Powell) to be the household's butler.
8. Love Affair (1939) - Two people (Irene Dunne & Charles Boyer) fall in love on a cruise but must get their lives in order before they can be together. A series of tragedies and misunderstandings keep them apart.
9. Made for Each Other (1939) - James Stewart & Carole Lombard are struggling newlyweds with just about every circumstance against them.
10. Beyond Tomorrow (1940) - A Christmas tale of two lonely old men that takes a turn toward the fantastic. The video quality on this one was the worst of the twelve films.
11. Penny Serenade (1941) - Cary Grant & Irene Dunne are a couple that adopts a child. When the child dies it looks like their love has died with her.
12. Cyrano de Bergerac (1950) - Jose Ferrer won an Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of the title role.
